I'm in as long as the purpose of the covers is to take care of that one page. I just don't want the kind of threesome where I'm the page in the middle

What are your relationship goals?
Am I looking to date a mono at present? No. Definitely absolutely no. But monos are all I get. All you polys here? If you go to OKCupid.com they are mostly monos. You have to practically get one-on-one with the site founders to find what you want. All those sweet people at the website want what all of America wants: their one and only. One and somebody else they haven't been "conditioned" for.

Poly-fi? OK, who made that up? That's one of the more hilarious expressions that have come up this week. Good on you.

If one is looking for love it isn't easy to find someone who is like-minded. Ya gotta keep the faith, baby. There is someone out there who thinks the way you do. You have to be persistent, and keep hope.

Actually poly-fidelity arguably predates the term polyamory.

Why yes it could, but it actually means poly fidelity. A closed group of poly people in a tribe that are exclusive. Usually because they would prefer to be fluid bonded, have been tested and are good to go. They prefer to keep things small and intimate.

Fluid bonded? You folks are genuinely great! I've never met any folks like you before, and I've met a lot of folks! redpepper, I wonder very much what you look like, ma'am, and also MonoVCPHG. I think both of you are wonderful, and also many others here too. This site just seems so easy and relaxed and loose and light. I wish I'd found you earlier in life.

Fluid bonded- No sexual protection, skin on skin.

And we are way to hot to show our faces! You would be bowled over by our hotness, can't have that!

Actually Mono has an extensive album on his profile. Maybe if you ask him he will friend you on here?

You mean, you Mono and Nerdist area giving a workshop this weekend? Ha, ha, I didn't know this was happening. I would love to hear more about this fundamental difference between monos and polys.

I'm not sure I cleanly or clearly fit into either. I've been monogamous my whole life up until 3 years ago and didn't think otherwise until it was introduced to me. Food for thought...

Redpepper, is this the poly camp that was organized by someone in the poly women's group? (Don't want to say her name here). Different from the one we're going to at the end of the month?
